Abstract:In addition to arguing that the theoretical basis of the revised TSE/SPEAK inadequately serves the test's practical purposes, the author recommends the scoring rubric be changed from holistic to multitrait. It is hypothesized that the multidimensionality believed to exist in the construct "oral English proficiency" might be statistically determined through detailed analyses of rater behavior and examinee responses rather than through analyses of holistic test scores.
